It's Fun to Know: Playing-Card Superstitions
Gamblers are a notoriously superstitious lot. Here, for example, are a few things that poker players dread:

  • The four of clubs is known as "The Devil's Four-Poster Bed," and is believed to attract bad cards later in the game.
  • Aces and eights (a pair of each) is known as the "Dead Man's Hand," and is reputed to be the hand "Wild" Bill Hickok was holding when he was shot dead.
  • Looking at your cards before the dealer is finished passing all of them out brings bad luck. So does picking up your cards with your left hand.
